Gates Foundation Co-Chair Melinda Gates Speaks About Efforts To Improve Contraception Access At Code Conference

Recode: Melinda Gates is going ‘all in’ on contraception in her philanthropy efforts
“Melinda Gates is on a mission to help women around the world decide when and if they have children. ‘What I’m trying to do is bend the curve,’ the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation said in an interview with Walt Mossberg at the Code Conference on Wednesday morning, joined by her husband, Bill Gates. That curve represents the pace of getting 110 million more women around the world access to birth control, which given current trends would take until 2035. Melinda Gates says the foundation is trying to shorten that to 2020…” (Hesseldahl, 6/1).
